 Agustina Cañamero and Pascual Pérez hug and kiss through a plastic film screen to avoid contracting the new coronavirus at a nursing home in Barcelona, Spain. An elderly care centre installed the screens to resume relatives' visits to residents 102 days after a strict, nationwide lockdown separated them. As she and her husband broke out into tears while kissing through layers of protective masks and the transparent plastic film, Cañamero said that the couple had never spent such long time with no physical contact in 59 years of marriage. Nursing homes in Spain have been particularly hit by the novel virus, which has claimed at least 28,300 lives nationwide. (Image: AP)
